The “peaceful pathway” includes three BOLD moves. They are: - RECALIBRATE - ALIGN - ACT
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 Have you ever had to do something that you really didn't FEEL like doing? In the last post, we talked about responding to these challenging and opportunity times by WALKING IN OBEDIENCE. We are building on this challenge as we move forward in the Peaceful Pathway to the bold move ACT by putting OBEDIENCE into practice, no matter what. The challenge with walking in obedience comes when our FEELINGS and EMOTIONS are not lining up with being obedient and doing what we know is right. Sometimes it is a struggle to FEEL like being productive, being obedient, or simply being still with God. It is in these times of struggle with FEELINGS that it is especially important to emphasize doing the right thing with our ACTIONS. We all need to practice doing what is RIGHT, whether we feel like it or not. We CANNOT wait until we FEEL like obeying to obey. Join me in ACTING our way to feelings, rather than waiting for feelings to ACT. We continue to pray for specific prayer request you send our way on Sunday mornings. Please send your specific prayer requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
God is in control, and with His help, WE WILL get through this.
